Chukwueze was named Villarreal’s best revelation for last season, following his impressive performance in the LaLiga.
The 20-year-old was honoured alongside former Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla and fellow African Toko Ekambi in an event organised by the official Villarreal supporters’ group (APV).
The award is new and was christened ‘Peña Pardals Grocs Awards’.
Villarreal confirmed the award on their official website and Twitter page with Chukwueze all smiles as he receives the Ballon d’Or lookalike award.
